class ode 

throughout the years, thy ivied walls 
have kept us safe within the fold, 
secure from all the winds of chance, 
and sheltered from the bitter cold. 

within these walls we looked to thee 
for high ideals and counsels wise 
just as thy tower light becomes 
the "cynosure of neighboring eyes." 

now when the parting moment comes 
and paths appear to future bright, 
thy faithful guidance will remain — 
a hidden source of truth and light. 

— kathleen graham

foreword 

. . . the pages of the 1938 alpha ... an effort to portray both editorially 
and pictorially the student life of the college . . . the result of an urge com- 
mon to all men to leave behind some fragment of personality ... a hope to 
preserve for the future the memories of our under-graduate experience . . . 
so vivid now ... so quickly dimmed ... so easily crowded out . . . 

. . . there is something about one's own . ... deserving or not . . . that 
is always dear . . . thus it is with the past four years . . . sharing the 
same joys and unhappinesses . . . the fellowship of sports . . . the friend- 
ship of instructors . . . the congeniality of classes . . . we have come to 
hold them dear . . . 

. . . this yearbook, too, is our own . . . into it we have set that which 
is worth remembering . . . but the mere act of recording characterizes it as an 
ending . . . of a four-year dash toward the festival of life . . . which we 
may not enter . . . until the salt and savor of the character, the taste, and 
the wit of each of us come into their own . . . when we can live with 
people and yet love them . . . fight with them and for them . . . share 
our experiences with them and build our philosophies independently . . . 
break down barriers and move on into usefulness . . .

that the snow will blush 

more deeply, 

that the shadows will purple 

the blue glens, 

and the ice will glaze copperly 

on the dark trees — 

on Christmas eve. 

that will be 

the loveliest kind 

of foreshadowing.

i can hear the 

garden going to sleep all rustling — 

the silken stir of a breeze 

in the cups of lion-bearded irises, 

a blue bug, closing and 

unclosing his scissors, 

and the sighing of falling petals 

as a purple rose shakes her head. 

i am sleepy, too. 

go away, moon.

fatigue . . . 

a yearning backward to the womb 
the thickening fingers of the mind 
push out to grasp 
a half-remembered nothingness. 
. . . is it nothingness you find? .

impressions of the college 



fall 



fall effects two feelings, 

gain with the coming of new energy 

and loss with the going of former gains. 

now the once-green of the trees has fallen, 

the grass retreats from its plotted edges, 

but youth runs lithely over the dying grass 

and youth scuffs through the burial mounds of leaves. 

down in the garden the pool is a mirror 

not of blue sky, but of shrubs brown in crisp death. 

fall effects life and death. 



page one hundred and six 



winter 

winter is here ... so awake 

to the clang of heat-forced pipes. 

walk out on snow that swerves 

like cornstarch underfoot. 

along the sidewalks banked 

feet high with diamond chips. 

look out through the windows 

where black trees are etched on white. 

and when night comes, watch the moon 

that is round and warm orange 

on the horizon 

contract into frozen white 

high in the cold blue. 



page one hundred and eight 



spring 

spring comes to bridgewctter 

on the day you wake early to lean out the window 

to crane for that bubbling bird, 

on the day you lift your burrowing chin 

from the fur collar of winter 

into the velvet ruff of spring air. 

certainly it is spring — 

when shoes grayed by winter's slush gleam unseasonably 

like driven snow in sunlight. 

and when you feel the golden preciousness 

of wall-sheltered dandelions, 

you rejoice in spring at bridgewater. 



page one hundred and ten 



summer 

just as those microscopic red fuzzies 

swarm on the stone arms of the building steps, 

so students pour out of dark shelters to 

take over the greenness of the campus, 

thankful that grass is the color it is, 

not pink ... or blue ... or red . . . just verdant green. 

they let the sun's rays hit on their eye-balls 

until they go in, blind in the cool black 

of cavern-like corridors with red signs, 

blinking at each end. 

perhaps at night a thunder storm rains down. 

then in tillinghast hall hands run up 

bared arms that sleeve-less dresses don't keep warm. 

cocky white flannels and ducks wilt at the 

freshness of the air. 

a half-hour later the stars reflected 

in side-walk pools wink at the spike heel that 

disturbed their stillness.

reflections from the campus pond 



. . . four years are about to close . . . the end of a distinct period in our 
lives is near ... so why may we not spend our final week in reminising? 
. . . before speakers exhort us "youth of the new era" to "look ahead to a 
brilliant future" ... 

. . . the time seems a particularly apt one for the purpose of determining 
how much we owe to bridgewater ... to appreciate her in the one re- 
maining week, without waiting for time to mellow us . . . for we all are 
imbued with the lack of gratitude which too easily attained benefits bring . . 
... to gain a slight measure of appreciation ... let us imagine a balance 
. . . into one pan we place the advantages which we as individuals have 
gained from the college . . . into the other the things we have contributed 
to bridgewater to build a better college . . . 

... on the personal side, we see ... if we have applied ourselves at all 
... a widely diverse background of knowledge and interests . . . allow- 
ing us to enjoy more fully the present and the future . . . we see a creditable 
fund of definite information in our chosen subjects, coupled with a workable 
philosophy of application . . . aimed to remove the parrot-like gualities 
from learning . . . added to this is a feeling of having something definite 
to offer . . . being prepared for a profession . . . as so many of our con- 
temporaries are not . . . 

... if we have ever had the potentialities for becoming men and women 
. . . they have been fostered here . . . for let us remember that freedom 
and independence are very relative quantities . . . which are never quite 
attained . . . and thus let us realize that the very limitations which sur- 
round us have frequently been a better preparation for living than great 
freedom might have been . . . 

. . . these four years have been happy ones . . . the security from major 
worries . . . the facilities for enjoyment . . . the general atmosphere 
. . . are intangibles upon which you cannot set a value . . . what insti- 
tution could possibly offer more opportunities for ridding us of self-conscious- 
ness and lack of poise . . . which are such drawbacks in meeting the 
multivarious situations of modern life? . . . 

... all these . . . and more . . . were offered . . . can we blame the 
college if we failed to take advantage of them? . . . 

. . . high on the other side hangs the pan with our personal contributions 
to the institution . . . could we mention the tuition paid? . . . the answer 
is obvious . . . 

. . . the college has progressed since we entered . . . but then, it has 
progressed in the past ... is progressing in the present . . . and will no 
doubt continue to progress in the future without our aid . . . tho we have 
shown cooperation, to some extent, with the authorities in achieving ad- 
vances . . . most of us have appreciated the advantage of added courses 
and added study loads . . . realizing that the ultimate benefits would be 
ours . . . yet we certainly did not cooperate to the extent warranted by the 
advances . . . the encouragement given to the already overworked faculty 
has been negligible . . . the crying-down of the college has not decreased . . . 
. . . what feasible plans of improvement have we submitted? . . . 
. . . how have we conducted ourselves off-campus to increase the prestige 
of the college? . . . 

. . . favorably . . . we hope now . . . but we are reminded that there 
was much room for improvement . . . 

... all in all . . . we do not seem to have reached a very close equili- 
brium ... so let us humbly leave . . . with a hope that future classes 
may more nearly hit the mark we missed . . . realizing the great debt of 
the student . . . ambitious to fulfill it. 

page one hundred and fourteen 



afterthought 

. . . and yet this not an ending . . . 
nor even a beginning . . . but rather 
a filling in of one side of the pattern 
. . . the pointing up of one ray of the 
star . . . we move on to the next
